A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

August 2, 2006 — It’s been almost a month that we’ve been back home in San Juan Cosala. Our Mexican cat, Misty, has had some serious adjusting to do. She’s about a year and a half old and has been an “only cat” since we got her as a young kitten. She had cat friends (and enemies) who used to come into our yard when we lived in Bernal, Queretaro, with her.

She was not pleased when we came back from the US with Moonlight, our six-year-old half-Siamese talker. She tended to find high places that she could glare at him from:

But with time, they are getting along better. Their favorite place to hang out is our bed:

We’ve seen them even closer. But no cuddles yet, not with each other.

If I hadn’t been so extremely fond of Moonlight, we would likely have found him a good home in the US. (His sister Midnight did stay behind with friends in Crestone, and she is doing great there.)

There is certainly no lack of cats in the Lake Chapala area. Barb Hess, the cat lady at the Animal Shelter in Riberas del Pilar, told Kelly the other day that they have many, many cats available for adoption at present. It’s a great situation for the humans who adopt them, as they are given topnotch health care before being offered. If you live in the Lake Chapala area, and are thinking of a cat in your life, do go by! They also welcome cat-lovers who just want to pet some cats.
